3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours unclear dark coffee with a decent beige head, so awesome out of a can. The aroma and flavor both bring light tart notes on a single Belgian stout type of body. It is a little creamy, very smooth with no alcohol at all. Some green apple notes are in there as well but ends a little early.

Tap. Black with minimal head. Mildly sour with substantial malt. Chocolate and cherry elements. Feels lighter than a stout, but looks the part. Odd, but not bad

16oz can .. . weird aroma, creepy grain .. . farmhouse is correct .. . tart and a bit burnt .. . strange but strangely enjoyable .. . . just when I start to think people aren’t so stupid, I remember people buy tuna sandwiches out of vending machines.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: Poured a deep pitch-black color ale with a medium size dark brown foamy head with good retention. Aroma of roasted malt with tart cherry notes, some tart notes and some black chocolate. Taste is a complex and rich mix of cherry, roasted malt deep black chocolate notes with light lingering residuals sugar notes with plenty of fruits notes. Body is full with an oily texture and medium carbonation with no apparent alcohol. This is a very complex mix which is not as tart as I was expecting. I could see myself drinking this once in awhile but just too powerful for regular consumption.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A more acidic roastiness than would be desired in aroma, but plenty appreciable. Implies a powerful, potent brew. A robust, sexy appearance, even with only the rim of a head. Lacto-sour dominance of flavor. Mouth puckers strongly. Similar to Jolly’s Madrugada... for which I have a soft spot, though less robust and lower viscosity. In sum, one of the two best sour stouts I’ve had, easily.
